What do you get from your Scout Stairlift?

The Scout gives you exactly what you need: a simple and low-cost mobility solution that gets the job done. For users with basic, straight stairs, the Scout provides an even more affordable alternative to residential elevators, home modifications or entering an assisted living facility. It is a perfect stair lift for basement stairs, so you no longer have to worry about falling while going down to the basement. And when you reach the top of the stairs, the Scout’s swivel seat will allow you to turn the chair lift to face the landing, so that you can get off easily. Your safety is our top priority, so we’ve set the Scout’s weight limit to 300lbs to ensure it will carry you comfortably and safely up and down the stairs for years to come.


The Scout stairlift comes with vinyl, Walnut-colored upholstery.

The key features of your Scout stairlift

While the Scout was primarily designed as a basic stairlift option, it still maintains many important features of the Stannah line. Take a look at what makes the Scout such an intriguing option.

Ideal for basement stairs

The Scout’s slim profile means it can fit into tight staircases and swivel onto upper landings with a door at the top, even if space is limited. That makes it a great fit for basement stairs and garage entries.

Anti-Slip Footrest

The Scout’s footrest carpeting prevents slips when getting in and out of the chair. So, you can always feel confident stepping onto the sturdy footrest. The footrest also can be folded away when the stairlift is not in use.

Safety Sensors

The Scout has safety sensors on the side of the carriage and beneath the footrest, which means it will stop if it encounters an obstruction. You’ll never get your foot caught or run over anything while riding your stairlift.

Ergonomic controls

The Scout is operated by an intuitive, ergonomic hand control which can be operated with any part of the hand or wrist. It also comes with two remote controls, allowing you to call it from another floor.

The Scout is fitted with a diagnostic window on the carriage, below the seat. If you make a mistake, you can easily troubleshoot the problem using the number code in the window. We’ll give you a key for the codes during installation.
